The Christmas season is great, but it can also be a bit melancholic. I’m not embarrassed to admit that I sometimes get depressed in the winter (and in the spring, summer, and case, for that matter). One thing that always helps is to be a little bit playful and weird. So, in the spirit of open-mindedness, I reached out to ChatGPT for help.
The suggestions that came up were pretty standard, but they’re probably all good ideas. “Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a form of depression that occurs during the winter months when there is less natural sunlight,” ChatGPT said. Explaining that this type of depression can happen to anyone, the KI said symptoms can include problems like low mood, hopelessness, trouble concentrating, sleep or appetite changes. and low energy levels.
Nice to start with a reminder that this is a common problem. ChatGPT further suggests getting as much natural light as possible, regular exercise, a healthy diet, relaxation techniques like meditation, and seek support from a friend or consider contacting a mental health professional.
I already saw my therapist this week, so I was on the right track. I put on my headphones and took Chili for a nice long walk. It was a little cloudy outside but I managed to get some natural light. I took extra time sniffing around Chili and her little Christmascanine hearts Contents.
When I got home, I did yoga for half an hour with mine Favorite YouTube trainer and followed by dried fruit and a healthy chicken sandwich. (ChatGPT also said to limit sugary foods, so no more Christmas cookies for today.)
In the end I felt a little better. Nothing beats a little AI to regulate your mood. Looks like it’s going to be a merry Christmas after all.
